Funny, provocative and surprisingly accessible, MANUFACTURING CONSENT explores the political life and ideas of world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist Noam Chomsky. Through a dynamic collage of biography, archival gems, imaginative graphics and outrageous illustrations, Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick's award-winning documentary highlights Chomsky's probing analysis of mass media and his critique of the forces at work behind the daily news. Available for the first time anywhere on DVD, MANUFACTURING CONSENT features appearances by journalists Bill Moyers and Peter Jennings, pundit William F. Buckley Jr., novelist Tom Wolfe and philosopher Michel Foucault. This Edition features an exclusive ten-years-after video interview with Chomsky.

Manufacturing Consent for the Masses
This documentary successfully converts the insightful, well-written scholarly book Manufacturing Consent and condenses it into a popularly appealing documentary that is probably interesting to a much wider audience. It's interesting to watch even if one has already read the book. This movie is a great tool for introducing people to the concepts. Great to show at a lecture, IMO.
